I’ve looked at many sources and have not found anything. However if true, Rest in peace. She has had many medical problems over the years and now she is at peace with God. Prayers to her family too.

So few left from this era. She had her personal difficulties but there’s no one today that could do a “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”. She was so good.

RIP

A beautiful woman; she did a lot of advocacy for AIDS victims and research.

May she rest in peace.

My brother in law worked at the Beverly Hills Hotel when she was there all the time. He had coffee with her almost everyday. He said at her heaviest she put Hagan Daz ice cream in her coffee.
He always said that she was probably one of the nicest people he ever met in Hollywood.

RIP Liz.

Seriously, she was probably the greatest beauty Hollywood ever produced - and a hell of a good actress. Just saw her in “Virginia Woolf” - what a performance!

None coming from me. She was eccentric, but otherwise a class act. No current Hollywood performer comes close.
